Key Visa Categories

The partner visa is primarily categorized into two types:


Partner Visa Subclasses

Partner visas are classified into temporary and permanent subclasses. Initially, eligible partners are granted a temporary visa which may lead to a permanent visa either after a set period or sooner if the relationship is longstanding or involves children.

This migration category also facilitates the entry of fiancés of Australian citizens, permanent residents, and eligible New Zealand citizens.

While being the partner or fiancé of an Australian resident does not guarantee permanent residency, applicants must apply and qualify for a permanent visa based on legal criteria.

Visa Options Based on Location

  • If residing in Australia: Eligible for Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 820) and Permanent Visa (subclass 801). This visa allows you to live in Australia with your partner. A permanent visa may be granted after two years if the relationship continues to be genuine.
  • If outside Australia: Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 309) and Permanent Visa (Subclass 100): This visa permits entry and stay in Australia with your partner. A continuous genuine relationship of two years can lead to permanent residency.


Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300)
